The critters should like them, too?
I was initially signed up for a pipeline ROW across my camp land, but they could never get an agreement to go beyond my next adjacent neighbor, so that fell through last fall.
It would've crossed my 5 acre hayfield, then up through old reverting pasture and across my woods, to the neighbor's woods.
They asked if I wanted anything planted in the pasture and woods, when they were done. Told 'em I'd take care of seeding those areas, once they had everything graded.
At last weekend's PFSC convention, most of Sat. was taken up with a Marcellus Shale symposium, hosted by the Keystone Energy Forum. Andarko, Range Resources and other exploration outfits took part, along with all four PA agencies affected by gas drilling.
Great presentations by all those participating and some pretty energetic Q&A sessions during the day's events. Also represented on the discussion panels, were PFSC's Conservation Comm. chairwoman, TU and a snowmobile org.
Quite a few were favorably impressed with what the industry folks had to say and the power point pics on both drilling and restoration work. DCNR and DEP both debunked much of the press info on their supposed inability to regulate and inspect.
